Clothing – Using the right clothing when you sweat is very crucial. When working out, the usual practice is to wear synthetic (those that dry fast) clothes. This material can actually promote acne growth.

Genes – In some cases, you get acne on your back because it is genetic which means you have no control over its occurrence.

Skin Products – You use body lotions and tanning creams when you are sunbathing. While these products can reduce sunburns, they can cause acne on your back.

Solution – When you use sun tan creams, look for those that are not too greasy (oily) and those that do not dry too fast. Creams are better than lotion under the hot sun because they help to moisture the skin and do not contain too much oil, thereby promoting acne development.
